INKspired Blog Hop 43

We're back for another INKspired Artists Blog Hop and exciting news... we have another new member - my good friend Nicole has joined us.   So this week you definitely have to "hop" around to everyone or you'll miss out on her fabulous creation!

Have you been to see what Lissa created?  or are you starting here?

Either way you're in for a treat because we have a "full house" of INKspired Artists this round!

I loved this week's sketch, it let me get some layering happening and layer up I did.

Here is the sketch:

Rather than add a rectangle with a sentiment I went for a softer look, using Jar of Love - that mason jar - adorable!!!

To create this card, I've used Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Papers.  I've highlighted the Island Indigo & Mint Macaron prints - I loooove blues.

(I've stamped in Island Indigo, Pool Party, Sahara Sand and then the leaved in Old Olive)

I have kept my card quite simple as I really think that the papers and the gorgeous mason jar speak for themselves AND they're just so gorgeous that they don't need anything else.

Next up is my beautiful best Stampin' Sista Marlene,  I've had a little sneak peek at what she's created and you're going to LOVE it.

Not that there's much left, but enjoy what's left of your weekend.

See you soon with some more creations.

Getting my Creativity On!

I don't know about you, but some days I am more creative than others.  So, yesterday creativity struck and I decided it was time to make some cute thank you cards for my customers.

I love Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper, it is no secret that I am a blue girl so when I saw these papers, it was love at first sight.  

I got a little production line happening so I could see exactly where I was up to (slight OCD tendencies here lol). 

I left the card super simple because I have a few to make - and anyway Simple is Good, right?!

 I got twelve made in two different patterns, aren't they adorable?  They're inspired by my gorgeous up-line Louise Sharp.

Once I'd finished the cards I still felt like creating and my laptop desk was a little bare SO I added some more Floral Boutique DSP, mounted on two layers Night of Navy then onto Whisper White.  Then in all honesty, all I did was repeat and put them into IKEA Ribba frames.

Simple home decor at its finest!  Now just to get them on the wall.

Just to the left of my laptop desk is a very empty bookshelf that I use for displaying cards and other projects.

While I had the trimmer and papers out I decided to #hack my Kmart Light Box...

I simply measured the letters, cut three strips of DSP and slid them in.

Cute, huh?!

Now, after all that creativity I'm not sure what to do next.  Come visit again on Sunday and see...

If you'd like to purchase any of the products that I have used click on the product below to be taken to my online store.

(with the exception of the IKEA frame and the Kmart Light Box lol)

INKspired Blog Hop 40

Helloooo! and Happy Fathers Day to all the Daddies out there and to all the Mummies that do double duties - you are amazing!

Welcome back to another INKspired Artists Blog Hop - our 40th!

You're coming to me from the gorgeous Barbara Williams, I loooove her creations.

This week's sketch was a clean, simple one - they're actually my favourite just quietly, I'm a simple girl LOL

Here is the sketch created by the gorgeous Teneale Williams.

In true Lisa form, my card looks nothing like the sketch.  Well, maybe a little bit.

I've used Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper to create my card front with a sentiment stamped from Watercolor Words.

I love Night of Navy and I especially love the crispness of Crumb Cake against it.  I've added a teeny bit of Gold Glimmer Paper for sparkle. Because, well I like sparkle!

You're off to check out the gorgeous Renee Lynch now.  I know she'll have something amazing to inspire you.

Thanks for popping in.

Lisa xoxo

INKspired Blog Hop 37

Welcome! we've had a little break but we're back with some INKspiring creations and a new team member.  So, grab your cuppa and enjoy.  Be sure to visit everyone and if you can, leave a comment - we love hearing from you.

You have more than likely landed here from the gorgeous Lissa Carter's blog and I am sure she's wowed you with her creation!

I've used a touch of Pop of Pink Designer Series Papers for my card this week.

I adore a black and white palette, so when I saw these papers; black, white, a "pop" of pink and a touch of gold, I knew we'd be friends! and I'm not even a pink person, lol

The Stamp Set from this suite is just as awesome, check out Pop of Paradise... How adorable is that Flamingo?  My daughter's new favourite from this catalogue!

Pop of Paradise is available in Clear Mount and Wood Mount.
Onto what you really came for... the sketch and my creation, right?!

I just love the layers on this sketch,  I love that we'll all interpret the sketch differently and that we'll all see that shape totally different.

Here's my creation, I hope you like it:

Your next INKspired Artist is the beautiful Renee Lynch who always inspires me.


Oh, and don't forget that for every $90 that you spend in July, Stampin' Up! are giving you $9 to spend in August.

To purchase any of the products that I have used on my card, head over to my ONLINE STORE.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I've inspired you in some way!

INKspired Blog Hop 34 - A Bit of Bohemian

Hello and Welcome to my first Blog Hop for 2016

Are you hopping in from the lovely Barbara Williams? Or have you started here?

 Do me a huge favour?  Blog Hopping is all about sharing the love, so be sure to hop along and look at all of our creations and if you have time please leave us a comment.  We love hearing from you.

IF by chance you get lost anywhere along the way, you'll find the INKspired Artist line up over there in my sidebar.
I've had a lovely break from everything and now that School is back I am ready to rock this year!

My baby girl started High School this year - oh boy that was scary.  But, she loves High School and practically pushes her brother and I out the door every morning!

That's enough about us, and onto something much more exciting...

Some crafty inspiration, here's our sketch;

Anyone who frequents my blog knows that I am a clean and simple girl so I loved this sketch and knew that the Bohemian Designer Series Papers would be just perfect!

Here is my take on the sketch;

Although the base of my card is Very Vanilla, I've used a very thin mat of Blackberry Bliss to create contrast between the very light background of the DSP.  Then for the sentiment, I have used a scrap of Blackberry Bliss then another scrap, this time of Vellum, then I've fed this and the Very Vanilla layers into the side of the Hexagon Punch (this is an awesome way to make banners).

Now it's time for you to hop onto our next INKspired Artist, my Stampin' Bestie, the AWESOME Marlene Goulder... although I haven't seen what she's created, but I know it will be fantastic.

Also, If you haven't got a copy of the Annual Catalogue or the latest Occasions Catalogue, I'd love to send one out to you.  Please email me and I'll get a copy in the mail to you.

Thank you for visiting, Happy Crafting

INKspired Artists Blog Hop THIRTY!!!

Hello and welcome back to another INKspired Artists Blog Hop

For those of you that are new to my blog - WELCOME and thank you for visiting me, or if you're new to blog hopping, here's a super quick introduction for you; 
We are 11 INKspired Artists coming together to sharing our spin on one INKspired sketch, created by Teneale Williams. We love to share our love for Stampin' Up! and INKspire you with our creations!

 Have you been to see Cherie's creation yet?

If at anytime during the hop, you get lost - don't worry just click on "next blog" button at the bottom of this post.

This week's sketch is super cute and it inspired me to give you a bit of a sneak peek at some new products from the new catalogue (available to you January 5th 2016)

So, here is this week's sketch:

Super cute, huh?!

During OnStage Live we were shown some gorgeous new goodies, these birthday papers went straight to the top of my list, I love that they're unisex which is fantastic for a couple of reasons;

1 - My son is the only boy on my side of the family and my daughter is the only girl on my husbands side - I know cool!

2 - When I do classes or workshops using these papers I'm catering to everyone - love that!

Here's the real reason you're here - my take on this week's sketch:

It's the bright, user friendly colours (these stripes also appear in Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron in the stack too) I think that makes this Designer Series Paper ROCK (and I'm just a little it partial to stripes)

AND did you notice that cute cupcake punch? and the candle? I know right! ... They're coming in a tiny punch pack that includes a Balloon, Cupcake and a Candle - super super cute!!!

I'd REALLY like to see some of you take this sketch on and if you do, post your creation to Pinterest or Facebook and let me know the link and there might just be a little something in it for you :wink:

Normally, from me you'd head to my bestie Marlene but sadly this week she can't join us BUT you're in for a treat because you're off to the beautiful Renee Lynch, country bumpkin and creative genius herself... enjoy!


Head over to my online store to purchase anything I've used on this card.
(NEW items not available until January 5th)

Thank you for visiting, Happy Crafting

INKspired Artists Blog Hop 29

Happy Sunday Hoppers!
It's that time again. Are you starting with me or have you come from the super talented Cherie, I love her creations.

While you're enjoying our Blog Hop, I am on my way home from another awesome weekend in Melbourne with my Stampin' Up! Family - we always have such a great time together, catching up and getting our creativity on!

I'll fill you in more on our weekend away later on in the week.

Here is the fabulous sketch that the lovely Teneale Williams has created for us.

And here, is my creation.

 I've gone for layers, any excuse to layer up shapes and textures - love it!

I'm still in love with the colours in the Bohemian DSP, so rich and gorgeous. It's not a Lisa card unless I've added bling; here I've snuck in some sequins from our sequin trim and some yummy gold cord.

Next up on your Sunday Hop is my amazing Stampin' Sista Marlene Goulder, cannot wait to see what she's created.

I'll see you in a couple of days with an update from our trip to Melbourne.

Thank you for visiting, Happy Crafting

INKspired Artists Blog Hop

A big HELLO and WELCOME to INKspired Artists Blog Hop 27!

I hope that you’re enjoying hopping around to everyone’s beautiful creations.

If you’ve arrived here from Cherie you’re in the right spot. If you do happen to get lost at any time along the way; in the sidebar is the line up, click on anyone to restart.

I’m thoroughly enjoying these blog hops; I love that they make me get creative and considering I need two cards this weekend…and I’ve not created one *argh*

This is the sketch we use for inspiration: #INK027

Here is my take on the sketch...thoughts?

This card is based on a card that was recently shared on our team page, an inside joke if you will.

I have used the Wondrous Wreath stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. It really does make Christmas cards super simple but very effective. Don’t you think?

Next up is the my Stampin’ BFF the one and only Marlene Goulder *insert fanfare here* I’ve had a look at what Marlene has created this week and I have got to say – that girl needs to teach me to colour…

Thank you for visiting, Happy Crafting
